Is that really an Olympic Sport?

Have you ever taken a pencil and held it in the middle (using your index finger and thumb) and shaken it to give the illusion that it was bending?

Yep. That's what Power Walkers look like.

As my husband and I watched in disbelief, hundreds of women with intensity in their eyes and not a bend in their knee were going for the gold. One foot remained on the ground at all times and that is all it comes down to.

It was so strange to watch. If you told me that a new Target had opened down the road I would probably understand it better, this group of determined women who really should be required to carry purses to complete the effect.

Don't believe me? Check out the following video (and picture a wiggling pencil).
